synopsisAudio documentary. A great development project is taking place near ENS Louis-Lumière in Saint-Denis. The constant construction noise is engulfing the entire neighbourhood. Saint-Denis has been scheduled to host the Olympic Village in 2024. As a result, its former residents, who had lived there until the present, have been forcefully evicted/relocated due to the new construction. Concrete Fissures focuses on how soundscapes can change as a result of capitalist gentrification.
